Is there a digital doctor in the house?

That might be the thought crossing someone’s mind when their smartphone or tablet slides out of a pocket onto a screen-shattering surface, or is found in a just-washed load of clothes.

Jim Bookamer, 62, became a franchisee after a career as an industrial designer. He embarked on his entrepreneurial adventure as one of the first to obtain a Digital Doc franchise when the opportunity arose to do something different with his life.
